Remainder Bin - Poem by Donal Mahoney

We write the stories
of our lives between

the bookends
of birth and death

They stay on the shelf
as long as we live

and then go in
the remainder bin

after we die.
No one buys them

and the paper’s recycled
to print the stories

of millions of people
yet to be born

except for the stories
that are never told.

They are the stories
Planned Parenthood sells.
